Happy New Year!


Since I had some time on my hands(Pun totally intended). I wanted to wish everyone out there in blogworld a very Happy New Year!

This has been an interesting year for me. I have finally lived in a house long enough for me to see my garden become established. That has been extremely satisfying. My constant designing ,planning,buying huge amounts of plant material and moving it around on a regular basis has finally settled down to a reasonable calm. Many nights of waking up or not sleeping at all because I was obsessed with an idea. I remember the treehouse location came to me in a dream and I went outside in the middle of the night in my p.j.s, with flashlight in hand to see if it would fit. My husband shakes his head at me lots!

Other satisfying happening this year was picking up a camera. This is something that has appealed to me for along time but just never fit into my pocket book. I have always had expensive hobbies and the thought of adding a new one would send my hubbie over the edge. It is his fault though because last Christmas he bought me my first camera. One thing led to another......and now I'm hooked! He also spoiled me this Christmas with a Tamron 90mm macro lense. I haven't put it down yet!

I am looking forward to what the new year will bring. Lots to do and see and try. Maybe I'll try a half marathon this year.......you never know!

I know what you mean about obsession. I will wake up in the middle of the night to write down ideas or rummage through my catalogs and gardening books to check on something that came to mind in my sleep.

I garden in the rain for goodness sake!

Thanks for making me feel less nuts for getting up in the night to pursue a gardening idea, although I haven't gone outside with a flashlight yet. Yet.
And Sandy, I'm looking forward to seeing what that new lens will do, combined with your keen eye. Susan

Obsessive compulsive is putting it mildly Wendy. I've just enrolled in Sandy's school of photography which means I have heaps of books,magazines and videos on everything to do with photography. I just wish there were some workshops available around here.

MariaJ-Thanks for the nice comments and thanks for visiting!

Jenn-I would love to leave comments on your blog but you don't have them set up. Happy New Year!

Run the half! Halfs are great fun and don't require near the training of a full. Plus you can do lots of halfs in a year, but I've never did more then two marathons in a single year.

I hope your first day of 2006 is wonderful!
